Ruby Watchco’s Ched­dar Cheese Biscuits

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp gran­u­lated sugar
1 tbsp bak­ing pow­der
12 tsp bak­ing soda
12 tsp pep­per
12 tsp salt
6 tbsp cold but­ter, cut in pieces
1 14 cups grated old white ched­dar cheese
34 to 1 cup but­ter­milk
1 egg, beaten 1 tbsp milk
Coarse salt for sprinkling

Pre­heat oven to 400F.
Com­bine first 6 ingre­di­ents in food proces­sor; blend. Add but­ter; pulse until mix­ture resem­bles coarse crumbs. Add cheese; pulse just until com­bined. Add but­ter­milk, puls­ing, until mix­ture clumps to form dough.
Trans­fer to lightly floured sur­face. Knead lightly, then shape dough into large ball. Chill at least 30 min­utes.
On lightly floured sur­face, pat dough into 3/4-inch thick­ness. Using a 2-inch round glass or cookie cut­ter, cut into bis­cuits. Place on ungreased cookie sheet or on sil­i­cone liner placed on cookie sheet. Brush with egg mix­ture; sprin­kle with salt.
Bake in oven 18 to 20 min­utes or until golden brown and cooked through. Serve warm.
Makes about 12 biscuits.

    Finally! A recipe adapted from a restau­rant that actu­ally works! (Don’t ask.…complete deba­cle with Dean & Deluca red vel­vet cupcakes.…they’re not a restau­rant, but you know what I mean)

    Thank you so much for post­ing this! They are just as good as the ones Lynn makes in the restaurant :)

    You’re wel­come! Yes, it is great when one can repro­duce a restau­rant recipe at home. I tweaked a veer­sion of Lynn’s amaz­ing bis­cuits that I found on the Food Net­work site. Happy cook­ing and bon appetit!
